A high performance bike like the Tonopah SL starts with a high quality frame. The double butted tubeset - made of our own high quality aluminium alloy - is packed full of technical highlights. The Smooth Welding at the head and seat tube junctions, the tapered head tube and 3D forged, multi-functional dropouts are just a few of the details which make the frame both light and stiff, giving it explosive acceleration. Internal cable routing adds to the modern looks while ensuring long-lasting smooth gear performance and reducing the need for maintenance.
Every saved gramme improves riding dynamics and enhances handling - and this applies as much to the Tonopah SL as it does to any other bike. That's why we've sweated the details and improved the components for 2017, so that you can squeeze out every last drop of performance. We selected the legendary XT 2x11 groupset from Shimano, with an upgrade to the peerless XTR rear derailleur and the seamlessly smooth performance you'd expect, across the widest possible range of gears. The exceptionally light and precise-steering Rock Shox Paragon Gold air suspension fork is sensitive, reliable and easy to adjust. There's even a handlebar mounted lockout lever. And, to make sure you'll keep riding on any road or trail, we kitted out the Tonopah SL with light and strong Fulcrum Red Power wheels, shod with grippy Smart Sam tyres.
